Poetic Justice

Who is this, so tall and slender
Like a graceful maiden fair,
 By the roadside in the sunshine
With her locks of yellow hair?

See you how she leans and listens
To the west wind wand'ring by

As the sun god calls and woos her
Stands the bashful maiden shy?

Must I tell you in her splendor
Her quaint old-fashioned name?

Would you know her when you meet her
With her tawny yellow mane?

~Arthur Bernstein

The Black-Eyed Susan, which means "justice" makes a very nice cut flower with a vase life of up to 10 days.
